I am pointing a domain name www.mydomainname.com to one server. I would like to know how to point www.mydomainname.com/extras to another server. I am using everydns.net for my DNS service. How can I do this? Thanks

You can point sub-domains to different servers but not specific folders like that.

You can, however, configure Apache with mod_proxy to act as a reverse proxy, and route requests for a particular folder to a different server. See:
